The Not As Planned series is a series of sculptures and functional objects made up of scraps, found objects, and samples that did not have the destiny they hoped for.
Questioning the relationship between the value of the material and the aesthetic value of the object. The place of industrial materials in our aesthetic reference and at the other end of the prism, the place of losses in craftsmanship.
It is also a creative exercise outside the usual social framework of design:
By not drawing on materials associated with an identity and a social power other than one’s own, by agreeing to nourish oneself in the reality of one’s immediate social and material environment, that of medium-sized towns, commercial areas, flea markets – the designer once again becomes an explorer who dares to face reality.
The existence of a material and non-aesthetic domination of a “noble” design finally becomes visible and tangible, and this is opposed by another design, a raw, real, radical, chaotic and free design.
Within the framework defined by this new design, the designer faces his own origins without cannibalizing them, and accepts his story, even if this one does not go as planned either.

Functional. Some pieces have deliberately not been permanently assembled. Some pieces are kept rough or unfinished for aesthetical purpose.

About Benjamin Foucaud Visit Showroom →

After years as creative Director & designer for major brands, Benjamin found peace in his own studio as a woodworker and cabinet maker. Primary using hand tools and ancient techniques, he focuses on his trade as high end builder, mastering a large set of skills, as well as defining his "non industrial designer" role, interrogating processes, technics, and valuation of wood towards our contemporary problematics and desires. This is why aside from furniture, he produces and build himself objects and sculptures, mainly unique pieces available trough Adorno. Inspired by the form of the wood pieces he finds in the workshop, cultural testimony and interrogation about what our civilization consider as being human. He delivers unique and sculptural pieces where wood becomes rich or humble, rough or sophisticated, simple or surprising.
